Anger and violence have spilled over onto the streets of Athens - with police using tear gas and water cannon against Greeks protesting draconian new budget cuts. Demonstrators hurled petrol bombs - with more than a hundred detained - as the country's Parliament passed an austerity package aimed at securing the latest bailout.
Journalist Charlie McGrath says the austerity cuts will heap further suffering on ordinary people, and that the situation won't change for the better until Greece acknowledges it's bankrupt.
